CMCI’s Dr Nuria Querol was in Paris to give a paper gave a paper at the ARTLAS Conference: “South-South Axes of Global Art” at the prestigious École Normale Superiéure. The conference focused on South-South axes of global art circulation from the beginnings of decolonisation to the present day.
Her presentation “The Delhi Biennale: Paradoxical Conditions in South-South Axes of Global Art and Politics” examined the proposed but never realised Delhi Biennale in the mid 2000s, its relation with the ideas and politics of the global south and what factors shaped the ultimate non-realisation of the exhibition.
The paper drew on Dr Querol’s long-standing research on globalisation and curating contemporary art, particularly in India and China. This research will feed into the new MA module “Art and Globalisation” that she is convening for CMCI next academic year.
